Due to the need for social distancing, the Women’s Committee will be hosting four events this year, two outdoors and two in the airy Great Hall with generous space. We hope that these changes will keep you coming to our wonderful Cincinnati Art Museum.

September 21: A look into the planning and execution of the incredible ‘Art Climb’, the beautiful steps and landscape leading up to the museum from Gilbert and Park Ave. We will meet outside on the steps and hear from the CAO, Dave Linnenberg, on this creation and design of this beautiful new addition. Followed by lunch in the Alice Bimel Courtyard.

January 25: Julie Aronson, Curator of American Paintings, Sculpture and Drawings, will be giving us a firsthand look into the life and art of Frank Duveneck a Cincinnati Artist and teacher with international acclaim. This will be an exhibit not to be missed!

March 22: We will kick-off spring with a presentation from the people that make the amazing Art in Bloom happen biannually. We will be taking orders for hanging baskets and arranged pots from ‘Ye Old Garden Shack’, in Batesville. Proceeds from this sale will go to the Women’s Committee.

April 26: One of my favorite speakers, Rita Heikenfeld, will be sharing favorite herb and gardening ideas and recipes. ‘Ye Old Garden Shack’ will be on hand to sell their beautiful baskets and arranged pots of flowers. Preordering through the meeting invitation is highly encouraged.


We will keep everyone updated to any changes that we may have to make due to social distance requirements.
